I may overdo posting about them from time to time but that is because socks even more than neckties are the most affordable part of the wardrobe to vary and I have been having fun with them this spring. The cottons are all new to me again after a winter of wools, particularly my herringbones. And if I do say so myself those are in a variety of ever so slightly different but useful colorways from pearl gray to charcoal brown.
In the photograph, light blue herringbone socks worn between a navy suit and a pair of bespoke black bluchers (technically a sin but the scale of these works well with lighter weight suitings). The hose also complement the day's light blue garza fina grenadine necktie (a combination that could easily be too coordinated but avoided that state with a totally unrelated pocket square).
